president obama step downs four years from now, and president obama's popularity is now the highest it has been since the first few months he was in office. today's poll numbers are a reflection of the president's inauguration speech when he spoke boldly of progressive values in the country. i'm joined tonight by joy reid, managing editor of the grio. i mean, if she were to run, if she were to announce, wouldn't there be just this groundswell enthusiasm because we know she is so qualified? >> well, i think partly because of her clear and obvious qualifications, but also, hillary land has a pent-up desire for this woman that has never gone away there was tremendous resentment between obama and hillary camps in 2008 partly because her supporters are so passionate about the idea that she should be our first woman president. it was very hard for them to walk away from that. there was a big push to get her on the ticket, to be vice president. they were disappointed that didn't happen. she then takes the job of secretary of state and really acquitted herself well. i think her approval ratings mi
up or shut up, d-day. in a shattering moment this afternoon, president obama threw down the gauntlet. he demanded congress pass a potent immigration reform bill, one that fixes the problem of decades, deals with the 12 million people here illegally, stops the illegal hiring and exploitation of workers. so the challenge is out there right now right there in tonight's news packed and ready for tomorrow's newspapers. will it explode into action, light a firecracker under the republicans? will it detonate an avalanche of action driving teeth into the reform, ending the perennial talk that's led to nothing or to the old bogus reforms of the past? will the politicians get real or play more games of ethnic fear, economic exploitation, and wedge politics? was today the end of all that? could that be possible? let's take a hard look with chuck todd. you heard all my questions. i'm older than you, i have been through simpson/mazzoli. i know we're laughing about -- >> i love it's getting a comeback. >> we've tried it all before. we've passed bills that said it's got teeth in it and it's got amn

the things that are terrible in society under barack obama, 8-10% unemployment, they try to paint that as normal. worse recovery in 50 years, they paint that as normal. economic report today they down play that. they downplay the plight of african-americans. they paint a rosy picture of what was going on. if it was not for that, obama would not have one the election. we would not be depicted by the media as a person who wants to get along and compromise but as a person who is divisive who says it's my way or the highway. who a socialist. they cover up for him because they agree with his agenda and they want to influence the agenda and we're suffering for it today. >> i don't know why. >> sean: juan, wait a minute. >> that is way over the top. you hate obama. you can't stand it. let's get back to what sean was talking about. sean had an important point. nbc especially in the george zimmerman, you can't edit a piece of tape like that that is interjecting race when he was asked about it. in the first instance the man that was the father of the dead child, i thought he was using a rhe

obama's side. we are now hearing that transportation secretary ray lahood is stepping down. he sent this letter to department of transportation employees saying in part, "i've told president obama, and i've told many of you, that this is the best job i've ever had." he goes on to say, "i'm grateful to have the opportunity to work with all of you, and i'm confident that dot will continue to achieve great things in the future." one out and another one in. well, almost anyway. last hour, the senate foreign relations committee voted to condition firm john kerry as the new -- voted to confirm john kerry as the new secretary of state. he will replace hillary clinton. and the full senate vote isn't expected until later today. that's considered more of a formality. >>> and this afternoon, cnn's exit interview with outgoing secretary of state hillary clinton is on our docket. make sure you action news to "the situation room" live at 5:00 eastern for wolf blitzer and the secretary. >>> now to a balancing act. a literal balancing act in florida from the famed wallenda family. nick wallenda is
obama and outgoing secretary of state hillary clinton sat down for a rare joint interview with steve kroft of "60 minutes" this weekend. the two discussed their past rivalry, their current working relationship and american foreign policy. it was a public sign of solidarity between the two former rivals. yet that proved to be too much for the folks over at fox news. the "fox & friends" trio complained about the lack of real news, and attacked crawford for not digging deeper into clinton's health issues. >> the interview was awkward. they were giddy saying goodbye. and right at the top, steve kroft said they only gave us 30 minutes, which of course means there is not going to be any real news. and there wasn't. >> but if you give somebody 30 minutes, you could get real into it, especially steve croft, who is usually awesome. but i think for some reason they didn't dig into anything at all. >> 30 minutes? come on. >> i would like to know, did she pass out and hit her head? was she pushed? how did she hit her head and get a concussion? >> and the whining didn't stop there. the network th

new member of president obama's second cabinet to officially be installed. hillary clinton does not step down till friday. on her final days some on capitol hill are not holding back in criticism. lindsey graham said in his view secretary clinton got away with murder with the attack on benghazi. that's far from the only issue that will be keeping john kerry busy as hillary clinton leaves the state department. jill dougherty sat down with secretary clinton. >> reporter: as secretary of state hillary clinton prepares to leave office, the country that once was a beacon of hope for democratic transition, egypt, is wracked with turmoil. the head of the army warning the state could collapse. >> i hope not because i think that would lead to incredible chaos and violence on a scale that would be devastating for egypt and the region, but there has to be some understanding by the new government that the aspirations that the people were expressing during the revolution in egypt have fwoe taken seriously. >> reporter: and if there's one lingering question about her tenure, it's the murder o

minutes," president obama sat alongside his departing secretary of state hillary clinton, a one-time political rival who he now describes as one of his closest advisers. secretary clinton, of course, is stepping down from her post, fueling -- you'd think you're on steroids and not me, seriously. just stop. >> are you juicing? >> she is. >> i had a huge allergic reaction to something. >> we don't want to hear about your rashes, so roll the clip. go. >> what's the -- i have to ask you, what's the date of expiration on this endorsement? >> oh, steve, you know -- i know -- >> i have to ask that question. i mean, come on. i mean, you're sitting here together. everybody in town is talking about it already. and it's taking place. >> you know, steve, i've got to tell you. you guys in the press are incorrigible. i was literally inaugurated four days ago. >> right. >> and you're talking about elections four years from now. >> yeah. and i, as you know, steve, i am still secretary of state, so i'm out of politics, and i'm forbidden from even hearing these questions. >> boy. you know, they h

, the indications right now are going to have a lot more details. there are a lot of people down there, there are a lot of families who are worried right now. that will change significantly the calculus of the obama administration with regard to iran in the years ahead. >> how does that change the calculus? you think because it will weaken the iranian program? was this israeli operation as you put it that effective? >> very effective right now. the information, larry, again, we're going with what we have. very effective. chiefly because iran cannot now complain that israel attacked its secret nuclear weapons program, one that it isn't supposed to have. also, we know that the obama administration is in active conversation with the supreme leader right now for a grand bargain. significant detail here. the attack took place, the day before the israeli election. the day before benjamin netanyahu was returned to make -- to form a government. he is now forming a government. this is huge news in israel. all of the television stations will be going with it tomorrow, the newspapers are going wi
bureaucratic red tape coming down the pike, and i think we need to be a little bit concerned about this. now, the righties out there are saying well, obama care, it's just too much government intervention. what about this? listen to the real folks calling a talk show, talking about what they're living with. first of all, you got to fix the visa backlog. okay? how do you do that? you get people engaged to do it and you start making phone calls and calling them. in maybe you can use the dmv. i mean, this is one of the big problems right here, the backlog. what that gentleman was talking about off the radio show. and a time frame. can we make it reasonable? do we want to tell these folks hey, you got to wait another 12 or 13 years. what? some of these folks have been here more than ten years. can't we get them on the fast track? how much loyalty do they have to show? what the republicans are afraid of is that they'll vote for the democrats so, we got to slow this baby down a little bit. the other thing is paying fines and back taxes. all right. let's take, for instance, that there is someone ou
that the university of chicago wants to buy that house, tear it down, and put up a parking lot. a parking lot -- a parking lot perhaps -- how ironic is this -- for the barack obama presidential library. >>brian: i blame the city of chicago. they should have made this a landmark. >>gretchen: they claim it is not a landmark, although they have delayed this process now a couple of times. the ronald reagan childhood home has survived now since december. they got a stay, so to speak, in january. it's still not exactly clear what is going to happen here, although the bulldozers are sitting nearby ready to go. what do you think about this story? should that happen or should it become a landmark? >>brian: or should the president say, listen, if my library, if i have to steam roll ronald reagan's house to build a library, i shouldn't have a library. maybe the president should decide. >>steve: it's not even a done deal yet. he hasn't picked a selection site, and the university of chicago is simply lobbying for it. e-mail us at friends at fox news. >>gretchen: how is this for a good use of your money? t
to the state department, the man who was assigned in 2009, his main job, his job, everybody, to be down there to help close the infamous prison, has been reassigned and there are no plans to replace him. for more than four years, we have heard president obama promise to close that prison. >> we're going to close guantanamo and restore habeas corpus. >> those prisoners that we hold in guantanamo deserve to be able to go before a court and say it wasn't me or i didn't do it. >> pretty clear. it's still open. president obama insists he still wants to close it but as of october, there were 166 detainees still being held in guantanamo and the question tonight is will he keep his word. "outfront" tonight, the senior reporter for pro publica who covers guantanamo. what do you think? will he keep his word? he says it again and again. >> i'm sure that it's a goal but nothing that he's doing right now is affecting any possibility of a change. you know, i think part of it is they just were so boxed in by congress but i think also there's just been no leadership that's really been pushing this. and
free decision guide. and learn more about the kinds of plans that will be here for you now -- and down the road. i have a lifetime of experience. so i know how important that is. >>> as president obama throw his support behind an overhaul of u.s. immigration laws, one man has a lot to say on that particular subject. he's bill gates. a couple of years ago, gates testified before congress, saying hiring immigrants at microsoft is the key to its growth and he sat down with our very own christine romans, who joins me live. christine, what is he saying now? >> you know, i told him that looks like the only consensus you get in washington now is about immigration reform. and what would he like to see? does he think it is possible. he said quite frankly this is the best chance for real reform in years. listen, brooke. >> our immigration system makes it very hard for those people to come in. so if somebody is being offered a job here, for over $100,000, there is other jobs created around that job, you don't want to discourage a company from having to put that -- >> do we discourage them? >> abs
